Liverpool are “confident” that they can lower Bayern Munich’s price tag for Serge Gnabry, according to Sport.
The Catalan publication claim that the Reds have already held talks with the German’s agent about a potential move to Anfield, and they believe that a deal could well be struck with Bayern due to the good relationship between the two teams.
Negotiations over the sale of Sadio Mane were described as tough but fair, and Liverpool are hoping that they can use the same tactics in order to find an agreement for Gnabry to move in the other direction.
The 26-year-old has a year left on his contract at the Allianz Arena, and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has hinted that the player will be sold this summer if he doesn’t sign an extension.
Reports suggest that Bayern are holding out for around €40m (£34m) but the Reds are seemingly looking to secure his signature for below that amount. Jurgen Klopp’s side might not want to take too long in negotiating a deal, though.
Both Manchester United and Gnabry’s former club Arsenal have been credited with an interest in the German international, while Sport suggest Real Madrid may also make a move if they sell Marco Asensio.
